A detailed nonlinear analysis and design of a distributed voltage controlled oscillator (DVCO) is presented in this work. The analysis and design of the DVCO is performed using harmonic balance-based simulation techniques and envelope transient simulation. These techniques are used to make a complete nonlinear study of the behavior of the DVCO. Using the proposed nonlinear tools, a DVCO operating in the frequency tuning range between 1 and 2 GHz has been implemented in order to support the simulation results. The average output power and consumption along the frequency band for the designed DVCO are 5.2 dBm and 60.4 mW, respectively.
